The Fort Lauderdale Police Department is offering a Community Police Forum to residents of the City of Fort Lauderdale as well as civic and government organization members. The Community Police Forum is designed to foster an active partnership with the community. Well informed neighbors, who have an awareness of the mission, resources, policies and services of their Police Department, are critical to the success of this partnership. Topics addressed in the forum will include: Crime Prevention, Criminal Investigations, Special Operations and much more. In addition to scheduled classes, an eight-hour "ride along" with our Patrol Officers will be made available to the attendees.

All applicants must be at least eighteen (18) years of age. Selection preference will focus upon Fort Lauderdale residents and those who work or own a business/property within the City.

This is your opportunity to be involved in a dynamic, rewarding partnership with your Police Department. We need your participation to ensure the success of the Community Police Forum. Don’t hesitate! Complete your application today. Applications are available in the Fort Lauderdale Police Department lobby or by calling Sgt. Ivory Nelson at (954) 828-5521.
